Broadening Our View of Linguistic Diversity
O'Neal, Debra; Ringler, Marjorie
Phi Delta Kappan, v91 n7 p48-52 Apr 2010
The definition of English language learners needs to be broadened to include the marginalized dialects of English. Not all native speakers speak Standard English, and even those who do need to learn Academic English to succeed in school. By using strategies developed for ELLs, teachers can help all students become fluent in the language of school.
